Elinchrom ELC 500/500 Studio Flash Set Inc Bag is a high-end and portable lighting kit designed for professional use. It features a durable and rigorous design delivering consistent and precise light-quality in a variety of shooting situations. This is a great companion for your next photographic adventure.

TTL and Manual Functions

The ELC 500 lights work in both TTL and manual modes and a manual lock function retains exposure settings to quickly change between modes without losing exposure settings. Perfect for quick adjustments or to explore a variety of creative effects. Besides, High-Speed Sync allows for shooting at faster than standard sync speeds for action shooting, freezing motion or to balance ambient light and darken backgrounds.

Strong, Compact & Portable

The lights deliver an output of 3000 Lumens at 5700k and can be powered down to just 7 Ws, a small amount of light for wider aperture use, enhancing the depth of field or even just as a more subtle addition of light to a scene. Elinchrom's accurate and precise colour science with a CRI of 92, across the full power range, will deliver images with consistent coverage and colour.

Flexibility

With a greatly increased power range from 7Ws up to 522Ws, you have 7 stops of light to work with from subtle fill light to larger full-scene fillers. An intuitive interface gives you an efficient user experience with important information, such as flash duration, displayed. The addition of a custom favourite button can be set for quick access to your favourite feature. The Elinchrom ELC 500 kit runs bright daylight balanced LED for good pre-visualisation and adaptability on the go. Lights can be set up on various channels and in groups for versatile set-ups.

Solid and Rigorous Design

The lights have been built to handle extended use and are engineered to last long-term. The Smart Pro-Active Cooling works without interrupting your flow, learning your shooting style and adapting the cooling cycles to match. The speed-controlled fan will handle a heavy workload with an optimised airflow design that favours low-noise. Every element of the Elinchrom ELC 500 flashlights have been created and tested with maximum reliability and longevity in mind.

Light Modifiers & Accessories

As well as the ELC 500 Heads, you get the Dark Grey Elinchrom 16cm reflectors, the standard modifiers for general shooting. The included bags allow for easy pack down, transport and storage and in conjunction with the protection caps will keep your gear safe. If you get stuck the included user manual should get you out of trouble.
